In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Happily Ever After.”
This is something I think about a lot these days. I think when people are asked if they’re happy, there’s usually two possible answers, yes and no. Of course both of those are two broad but at realistically people asking don’t have time to hear anything more. If someone asked me if I was happy, I’d probably say that I am. Why? Because no one wants to be around an unhappy person. However, I think that Happily Ever After is one of those things that doesn’t really exist. Life is like a seesaw. It’s up and down, up and down and rarely ever is it 100% steady. Now, that could just be pessimism talking but at the moment, what I’d like to have is some content with my life and not some unrealistic happiness that I might not get.
Maybe there is a such thing as Happily Ever After but right now, it certainly doesn’t feel like there is.
